St. Luke's Stellar Initiatives To Help The Community

South Melbourne's St. Luke's continue to reach out with arms wide open, providing support for the community one hopeful program at a time.

Special Interest


Run by the Port Phillip Men's Shed Association (PPMSA) and sponsored by St. Luke's, The Men's Shed is a social group for men to come together and join in social activities, build woodworks, metalworks and community projects, or just hang out.

"An underlying principle is that many men aren't especially good at social contact, so it's a meeting place, and woodwork is the drawcard." - Nick Hernshaw, Senior Minister at St. Luke's

The group has proven particularly beneficial for retirees and isolated men throughout the community, as it warmly offers a great social opportunity.


St. Luke's Youth Support Program, The Homie's Homework Help Club, provides free homework assistance for students living in South and Port Melbourne. The Homie's Club is held every Thursday night from 6-7:30pm at Emerald Hill Library, where St. Luke's are granted exclusive use - including one-on-one tuition with a volunteer tutor, games and healthy snacks.


The Singing Group is comprised of both singers and various instrumentalists with professional musicians and enthusiastic amateurs alike, where all group members are also regular attendees at St. Luke's. All are welcome to join this all ages group, which provides an amazing opportunity for people to come together and have fun. Singing practice is held every week before St. Luke's Sunday Service from 9-10am. But in special preparation for their upcoming Christmas events, there'll be a scheduled two-hour rehearsal on Sunday, 4 December from 12pm.

See the The Singing Group perform live at The Clarendon Centre on Saturday, 10 December and Saturday, 17 December from 11am - 12:30/1pm.
